Dream come true!
"Oh my....absolutely wonderful, perfect, and all you could ever ask for in staying almost in the beach instead of on. Door to the beach is more than a true description for sure. Door to pure happiness, peace, and joy for the beach goer and sun God or Goddess. The cottage is immaculate and stocked for all needs rather in restroom or kitchen. The master bed was fantastic as was the temperature and fans in the home after coming in from the heat. Bikes, washer and dryer, beach toys for the kids, and on and on. Manatee within first 30 minutes being there and in the ocean. Dolphins, many, saw daily. And the turtles!!!! Saw one nesting one night and even go to see the STOP ladies assisting a nest that had already hatched. The beach is so secluded in a way as folks consider this part of the beach, Florida, and area, "old Florida." Just like the good old days before all the commercial stuff. None of that here. Just a wonderful vacation for our family. I was sad to leave and am anxious already to return. Well worth the stay as all of the comforts are more than you could hope for and it's just a wonderful rental thanks to Neal!!!!"

"We just returned from a 2 month stay at La Coquina & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It is close to shopping, a number of fine restaurants (Lock-n-Key & Maria's Italian Restaurant are musts) & of course the best part - the beach! There are wonderful sunsets to see, shark shells to collect as you walk the beach & a wonderful lanai to sit & relax at either eating your meals or reading a book... or even snoozing on the lounge chair listening to the waves. The pool is very close by & it seemed like we had it to oursleves most of the time. They have everything you need for the enjoying the area - beach chairs, coolers, bikes, even fishing gear. You will not be sorry ot come enjoy this clean condo by the beach."

"We really enjoyed our stay. It is a beautiful house and location. The beds were very comfortable. The best part was being away from the crowds and the most amazing sunsets. We also enjoyed our own private pool. We went to the beach across the street, to the public beach and to stump pass they were all very nice. If your looking for a beautiful, tranquil retreat and to get away from the crowds then this is the place. I didn't want to leave! The property managers even brought us a homemade key lime pie and we really ejoyed their hospitality."

"Split eleven wonderful days between 2 groups - my sister and 3 nieces and then my 3 sisters-in-law. What great memories we made! I've stayed in other beach front dwellings on both east and west coast of FL - This was by far the absolute best! It's amazing how such a gorgeously decorated condo could be so very comfortable at the same time. Everyone - from my 8 year old great-niece to my eldest sister-in-law (83 yo) – had the most delightful time! Condo is the perfect backdrop to enjoy your loved ones!
How relaxed we were! After a night in the most comfortable beds ever found in a rental, we’d gather one by one with coffee or tea on the lanai to enjoy the gulf front view. Then we'd walk along the beach looking for shells followed by cooling off in the pool. My sisters-in-law and I were thrilled to witness the Turtle Patrol setting boundaries around a new turtle nest (you could see the flipper tracks coming in from the water), as well as the Patrol assisting as necessary once a nest of eggs had hatched. (You have to get up early for this, but GREAT fun!)
We'd do a little souvenir shopping and riding about during the midday. The Beach Rd. Boutique is definitely worth a visit and there are super discoveries at the local Goodwill - Found glass bowls just right for pretty shells from the beach. Late afternoons were perfect for another trip to the beach and/or pool.
Perfect for homemade meals – kitchen is well equipped for food preparation! One night my nieces made delicious fish tacos using locally purchased shrimp and hogfish (never had it before) and black beans and rice. When my sisters-in-law came we enjoyed homemade Cuban sandwiches as good as any you'd buy in the Tampa area. My eldest sister-in-law made her family famous pasta salad - a tradition at our annual Girls' Getaway. In between we ate out - Don't miss the lobster bisque at Gulf View Bar and Grill! Be sure to try Zeke’s in historic Olde Englewood for their Crayfish Potato Nachos, and definitely don’t overlook Landy’s full menu with Seafood, Italian, and Greek specialties.
We were so sad to leave, but have made plans to return next year. Thank you, Jean, for what must be the easiest check-in on the face of the earth! Most especially, Debby, I thank you for making your exquisite home available for others to enjoy!"
